Through the years, my various Gurus have given me mantras to use in my meditations–for focusing my spirit and mind, for strengthening my body and heart. A mantra might be just a sound, or string of sounds. It might be a word, or a saying. Mantras are typically specific to a person. I am not certain that all my gurus know they were giving me mantras. One of my first gurus used to say “nothing more to do” at the beginning of Sivasana, and I know many of you have heard that from me. That is certainly one of my favorites for us over-active mind, life, and body people. I feel that it is good to pass on what we can. My very first yoga Guru, Lilias Folan, gave a group of us this lovely mantra for creating an healthy body. It requires singing and dancing, so I made a little video. Give it a try, give it a laugh, and maybe a little clap, snap or wiggle too!
